Seventeen-year-old Annika Truman knows about the power of positive thinking. With a little brother who has cancer, it's all she ever hears about. And in order to help Jeremy, she will go to the ends of the Earth (or at least as far as Hollywood) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery.
But Annika's plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curveball when he unexpectedly wishes that his television idol would visit him. Annika suddenly finds herself in the desperate predicament of getting access to the handsome actor who plays teen Robin Hood and convincing him to come home with her. Piece of cake, right?
Janette Rallison's proven talent for laugh-out-loud humor, teen romance, and deep-hearted storytelling shines in a novel that will have listeners laughing and crying at the same time.

"Tears ... so many tears...."
Beautiful story and beautiful writing, I read this book in school years ago and will continue to read it again and again. And I doubt it will ever cease making me cry.
"Serious themes with a light, romantic touch"
Yes! Though this is a YA book, and I am long past that age bracket, this book gracefully deals with themes that are constant in the human experience
The romantic in me loved when Anaka and Steve were stranded outside of Barstow and getting to know one another.
This is the first of Heather Masters's books I have listened to. She is a perfect reader for Janette Rallison's books.
Anaka was the most memorable because I got to know her best, having lived inside her head for the entire book. However, I loved Madison, too. What a true friend! She was so level headed and so willing to get out of her comfort zone.
As my headline stated, I loved it that this book dealt with serious themes. I appreciated Anaka and Jeremy's story about the underworld and her dream about the Grim Reaper as she struggled to deal with the realities of her brother's illness. Janette's light touch and sense of humor (like Mr. Truman's pronunciation of Persephone) kept the serious situations from becoming maudlin.
